...Ila Mishra; Aakansha Sharma; Abhilash Prabhat; Twinkle Batra; Indu Malik; Vinod Kumar ABSTRACT We hypothesised that daily food availability times serve as an ‘epigenetic’ factor and affect reproductive physiology in continuously reproducing species. This we tested by measuring mRNA expression...

...Ila Mishra; Vinod Kumar ABSTRACT An abundant food supply is crucial to reproductive performance, as shown by restricted food availability experiments, in small-sized vertebrates including birds. However, whether daily feeding times affect reproduction is largely unknown. The present study...

...) in the middle of winter, after a fattening season with low (11 weeks, 40% restriction) versus high ( ad libitum ) food availability. This design aimed at simulating the combined effects of the quality of the fattening season (acclimation effect) and a sudden, severe food shortage during the lean season. Hour...

.... Which environmental cues are responsible for stimulating these adjustments is an unanswered question, although most studies have focused on weather conditions. Here, we present a novel field experiment that demonstrates that an alternative cue, food availability, may be a crucial link between local...

...-reared sand martin ( Riparia riparia ) nestlings. We subjected the nestlings to three different feeding regimes, mimicking the range of food availability in the wild, and then evaluated nestlings' immune response to phytohaemagglutinin (PHA). Direction of correlation between the magnitude of PHA-induced...

...Popko Wiersma; Simon Verhulst SUMMARY Understanding the effect of food availability on food requirements is critical when linking food availability e.g. to reproduction or habitat selection. Decreasing intake rate (intake per unit foraging effort) can be expected to increase daily energy...
